Fueling the Community

About a month after opening the Thrift Store by Evansville Rescue Mission, Mission Grounds Coffee began brewing coffee specialties and baking up some seriously good mini bundt cakes and cookies. Offering free wifi and plenty of comfortable workspaces, you can really get some stuff accomplished, while helping the less fortunate in our area.

Then & Now - Evansville's Washington Square Mall Through the Years

Evansville is home to a lot of unique buildings including the first enclosed retail shopping center in Indiana. Yes, our very own Washington Square Mall was the place to be when it opened in 1963. If you walk through the mall today, you would never guess how alive the shops were, even through the 1980s. Enjoy this walk down memory lane I've put together, and maybe someday there will be new life inside 5011 Washington Ave.
